Let's face it, we can't let our job get in the way of a good deal. That's why Cyber Monday is a bit of a nightmare for bosses. 

RetailMeNot, a digital savings company, teamed up with Kelton Global to launch a survey to get a feel for how this Cyber Monday will impact the workday. 

The companies found that roughly 94 percent of people plan to shop or browse deals during the workday today. Nearly half of us will even leave work early and 13 percent of us will get to the office late all because of the popular online shopping day, according to the survey. 

So, don’t be surprised if your meeting gets suddenly rescheduled.

But what if we get caught by the big boss? Well, 21 percent of us are willing to get found out if it means catching those big sales.

And those sales, according to RetailMeNot, will be the biggest with computers and electronics. Those items will have an average discount of 48 percent off today.
